Bro. Paul,
So, the way that I see it is that the church is to be more concerned about the magnification of the name of Jesus than it is about a “so-called” brother who has no concern for what he is doing to that precious name.
True, I follow your reasoning...I also think it is merciful to that brother as well because of this statement:

that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
If the brother stays in fellowship with his brethren and they accept him as they do a brother who is walking upright then he is not likely to repent and theoretically would get steeped in his sin.

I personally have seen this with people in my life. It salves their conscience to have a friend that is a Christian. Like "see she'll be friends with me, so I must not be so bad".......Does that make sense?
